  4. About this library

    Hulme had the very first branch library of Manchester’s free library – which was itself the country’s first free library. And free public access to books still matters here. We’ve opened up somewhere we can provide that up to 90 hours a week – at the leisure centre on Hulme High Street. Even when staff aren’t there you can collect, borrow return and renew books and log on to internet-ready computers.

    Hulme’s pioneering, independent spirit lives on here.
